Proper Cassette Shim

I have noticed some play on my back wheel which I initially thought was loose cone nuts. However that are plenty tight, so it looks like there is some space on the cassette between the driver and the cog. Allegedly the shim used in place of a bearing can wear down...does this sound correct?

Probably, all kinds of shit can wear down in a back hub. Take it apart and see if you notice anything.

Shims can wear over time, is the play side to side or can you move it around in the hub? If the latter then contact the distributors for proper, they will send you one for a small cost.

Thanks gent. I did take the driver apart and there was some very minimal wear on the shim itself. Any way, cleaned and regreased, and put it back together, and it seems to have stopped the problem for now. So all good. Cheers
